Good afternoon!
Schools are back in session and temps are cooling just a bit. This is a transition time for many gardeners and farmers. Summer crops are waning but still producing, and fall crops are planted but not ready to harvest yet. If you want to see several of our local Growers, Sandra has organized a Farm Tour for Sunday, September 10th from noon until 4pm. There are a few seats still available. Kids are welcome!

Need a great cup of coffee before your mornings get too busy? Lots of delicious varieties of freshly roasted and ground coffee available now from RoZark Hills Coffee Roasterie.

Ratchford Farms just listed many buffalo cuts! Limited supply so get your meat now!

We hope to be bringing you some exciting news very soon about a new Grower! Many are familiar with the great products this longtime Conwegian makes, and soon it will be very convenient for you to have them available at our Friday markets. Stay tuned!
